. >> fred joining us live now. fred, you know, were you surprised to hear people there say that israel should have continued those deadly air strikes on gaza? >> i was pretty surprised to hear people call for a ground war, at least some of them. i wasn't surprised hear people call for the air campaign to go on longer. one of the things we need to know about the area is that the people here get hit by rockets even in the best of times. not just during the military campaign, but on any given week you could have a rocket fall here and there, and people have been telling us they simply don't want to go on in this way anymore. they call the kind of operation that the israelis conducted now mowing the lawn, because they say what happens is they conduct an air campaign, and what happens is after that hamas is still there, hamas regroups and abbas gets new rockets, and hamas starts firing at towns again. >> do they feel they have any other options for places to live? >> you know, some people are doing just that. i mean, one of the things that's been going on is that people have been leaving th
candidate paul ryan is speaking in minneapolis. >> the five of us, we're in congress together. president obama has not met with the republican leaders in the house or the senate since july. >> boo! >> we have a debt crisis coming, we have budget problems, we have economic problems. that's not leadership. we need a leader. now the reason mitt romney and i keep talking about our five-point plan is because we believe we owed you our fellow citizens an actual plan. we owe you solutions, we owe you ideas. real reforms can be had to get a real recovery. we had real recovery in this state in this country let's use that recovery and put people back to work. let's get the keystone pipeline, let's get more gas, more coal and renewables. i tell you what, we know what layoffs are, we have family and friends that we know of who are in their 40s or their 50s or their 60s, prime working years, they're out of a job or they're out of a good job. we need to clear the bureaucracy so they can get the skills they need. and if there are kids who are stuck in inner city schools, whether it's milwaukee or minne
hours. really trying to put a u.s. stamp, footprint, if you will, on the negotiations. how much leverage does the u.s. have in actually making sure that the cease-fire is something that's going to hold? >> well the u.s. doesn't have much leverage over hamas because the u.s. doesn't deal with hamas. the u.s. government, previous governments, regards hamas as a terrorist organization. when secretary of state hillary clinton visits here in jerusalem later, then goes to ramallah to meet with mahmoud abbas tomorrow and then goes to cairo she's not going to meet with anyone from hamas. the u.s. does have leverage on egypt, given the economic and military assistance the u.s. provides to egypt and given the dire economic straits that the egyptians are in right now. so the u.s. has leverage on the egyptians and obviously the u.s. has very good relations with israel. so the u.s. is a key player in all of this. but as far as leverage on hamas, u.s. leverage is limited. >> secretary of state hillary clinton's arriving soon in jerusalem about three hours or so from now. she'll go to ramallah, then on
any kind of -- that we have to face. >> israeli defense minister ehud barack joining us live from tel aviv. do stay safe, and we wish the best for not only the people of israel, but the palestinians, and we hope that you can somehow come to some kind of a consensus to stop this violence between your two parties. thank you for being with us and for answering. our apologies for the difficult connection, but we have been struggling throughout the hour to make that connection with the defense minister, and now we know why. the air raids going in israel. particularly in tel aviv. thank you for watching us in this hour. please stay tuned now for my colleague suzanne malveaux who takes over with "newsroom international." >>> welcome to "newsroom international." i'm suzanne malveaux. we're taking you aron the world in 60 minutes. former cia director david petraeus is breaking his silence with the media speaking for the first time to our sister network hln's keira phillips about the sexual affair that ended his career. she has known petraeus for years interviewing him for many stories on the t
of the hour. you're in the "cnn newsroom." thanks for joining us. here are the stories making the headlines right now. a fire breaks out today at the u.s. state department in washington. four people injured, one of them critical critically. let's go live to washington and cnn's athena jones. what do we know? >> we're a few blocks away from the state department. there's still a lot of questions about this. there was a flash fire in the duct work at the state department. this is according to a d.c. fire department official. the fire started at around 11:04 a.m. as construction workers were performing work on the state department's premises. that fire has been put out and as you said, there were four people who were injured. one of them critically. three of them were transferred to a hospital here. two are in serious condition. one is in life-threatening condition. and so we're still waiting to hear more about this. fred. >> all right, athena, keep us posted throughout the afternoon. thanks so much. >> iconic 12 actor larry hagman has died. he was best known for playing one of television's gre
have joined us, have donated, sent food and we want to say a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of them. and he met say, mr. president, thank you to you because you have exemplified the spirit of partnership and the spirit of community. i was personally amazed and touched by your phone calls and attention even during times that were very, very busy. you were there for us. you were there for new york. and we thank you, mr. president. and together, mr. president, we will not just rebuild new york. we will build back better than ever before. ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. >> thank you so much, everybody. i'm going to be relatively brief. i came up here right after the storm. was on the jersey side. and i had promised to everybody that i was speaking on behalf of the country when i said we are going to be here until the rebuilding is complete. and i meant it. so i'm going to come back today but i'm also going to be coming back in the future to make sure that we have followed through on that commitment. i want to thank the outstanding leadership that's been
square. most of us were thinking that mohammed morsi really very much the peacemaker, key to the cease-fire between israel and hamas. doesn't even settle with the truce and then morsi announces this decree essentially a huge power grab. what is the significance? >> reporter: well, suzanne, the significance is until a parliament is formed here in egypt, until a constitution is drafted, he is the most powerful man in egypt, and, technically, he can do whatever he wants without any apparent oversight. that's why he is being called egypt's new dictator. that's why you have thousands of protests taking place behind us in tahrir square. the protesters represent the opposing factions, the liberals, the secularists, women's rights groups, the youth groups. essentially, their position is that we're not going to talk to mr. morsi until he rescinds his decrees, and we spoke to one of his top advisors today, and he said he'll consider that, but first there needs to be a dialogue. let's take a listen to the advisor. >> what kind of concessions are you willing to make? >> this decision is up to the
of the crisis in gaza. >> good to see you. glad you could join us, michael. here's what's going on right now. at least 11 more palestinians killed today across gaza. that is according to the official hamas tv channel. it's unclear if anyone died in the apparent israeli air strike that you see in gaza city, but the casualty count now stands at 142 palestinians dead, 1,180 wounded. >> the number of dead and wounded also rising in israel. hospital officials now say 24 people were wounded in this morning's bus bombing in tel aviv. no one was killed, though, but since the conflict with hamas began, five israelis have been killed. more than 70 wounded. witnesses say they saw a man throw the bag into the bus, and run away, and it blew up. official from both sides at this time yesterday, they actually believe that a cease-fire between israel and hamas was close, but diplomats today, they are furiously trying to get peace talks back on track, but there is still a lot of shock. there's action newsing other the streets of tel aviv. want to go there live to talk to sarah seidner. give us the latest of t
israelis have also been killed. our christian amanpour is joining us from jerusalem. first of all, israel is insisting these are surgical strikes intended to hit militant targets and avoiding civilian casualties. we now have reports that 100 people have been killed in gaza, 800 wounded in the past six days. there's a lot of concern about where the civilians lie in all of this. >> well, suzanne, i think any military expert will tell you that it's not possible in a place that is so densely populated, as is gaza. however, israeli officials do tell us they do have a new set of weaponry, more precision weapons than they did this time -- this time last time around when they went in to gaza on the ground and by air. more than 1,000 people were killed. now they are trying to do it in a different way, and they also -- you have the public military track and the diplomatic track going as well, and a senior israeli official told me today that they hope -- israel is hoping that they can, in fact, is he success from the diplomatic track. as you know, the united states is not interested in seeing an isr
our panel for being with us this morning. a story we'll continue talking about sadly, likely for the rest of the week. my thanks to you. my thanks to you for watching. "cnn newsroom" with carol costello begins right now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> as you can see, the violence continues in gaza. what you're looking at is an israeli attack on the 24-hour news channel in gaza. this is where, of course, the news is broadcast to the people of gaza. also western journalists operate outside -- inside this building. we do know one person was kimmed in this latest strike. this is actually the second time this building has been struck in the past two days. obviously the israeli military wants to take out any -- any information getting out to the gazans at this point. wolf blitzer is eight miles from gaza's border. can you tell us anything about this building? >> the only thing i know about the building, there are several media organizations that have their base in gaza in that building. the israelis -- i spoke yesterday with an israeli army spokesman who said there are a
are buying this weekend. they export a lot of clothing to us. it's a massive earner for the country. but they have lost hundreds of workers in just the last ten years because of fires like this. crowded garment factories, too many people, not enough exits, and terrible things ensue. >> it really does speak to the conditions, the working conditions? >> the working conditions are terrible. bangladesh is a very poor country and people are desperate for jobs. the garment industry can make its clothes anywhere. used to make them in china, china got to be too expensive so they're shifting jobs to cheaper countries like bangladesh, crowding people in, working them long hours under terrible conditions. i'm not speaking about this factory in particular but we know apparently from first reports there weren't enough exits. people had to jump out of the windows to get away. obviously not a lot of fire escapes. the firefighters were at the scene, apparently had trouble getting there because conditions were so crowded. when they got there, this is what they found. a lot of fabric. a lot of remain
correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yesterday, but here, voters can also register as well as vote on the same day. back in 2008, more than 1 in 10 voters in the badger state did that. that's what the obama campaign is focusing on. when the president talks in the 4:00 p.m. eastern hour, he's going to be trying to counter as he did in ohio, mitt romney's message about being the candidate of real change. he's been saying to his supporters that mitt romney is not about change, and also he's been trying to urge them to be patient, saying that the economic recovery is on the right track. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with everything deci
